Rebecca at Modite never fails to inspire me with her encouraging and thought-provoking ideas on career and life in general. I mean, it’s her fault that the entire Internet is trying to workout more and perform better at work. No one wants to look bad on #goalmeetup day.
Lately she’s been awesome at updating the Design & Style section of her site. I’m loving the goodness that she has been introducing to me. One of those nuggets of goodness was this post on Missed Connections. You know, those posts on Craigslist where you lament about not talking to the 7 foot model sitting next to you on the bus ride home. Well, an artist started using those Craigslist missed connection posts as inspiration and they’re pretty awesome.
So awesome, in fact, that I took a stab at illustrating my OWN recent missed connection. The Garfield cat that was hanging out on my doorstep before I left for work one morning. I chased it down, in the rain, trying to give it a can of Fancy Feast.
This “art” is dedicated to That Cat.
I really don’t have too much time on my hands. I just spend it weird.
Oh, and because I want to keep this real, I DID post an actual Missed Connection on Craigslist. For the cat.
